La Verkin, UT 84745


The Iditarod Trail Invitational follows the historic Iditarod Trail from Knik (home of the Joe Redington Sr.) to the interior village of McGrath, across the Interior and along the Yukon River and to the coast all the way to Nome, The famous sled dog route runs 1000 miles through frozen Alaska every winter since 1973 in memory of those brave individuals who brought the important serum to Nome in 1925 during a diphterie outbreak and was started by the famous Joe Redington Sr.

This race was formerly known as Iditasport (until 2001) and the Iditabike. Racer Peter Basinger continues to run a website with the name Iditabike linking back to our current event the 350 mile and 1000 mile Iditarod Trail Invitational race since it was founded by Bill Merchant and Pat Irwin.
